The first fashion illustration I'm sharing today was inspired by one of the dresses from Louis Vuitton Spring 2019 Ready To Wear collection. Have you per change seen this collection? I was attracted to it instantly. This printed red dress caught my eye, so I simply had to illustrate it. This Louis Vuitton spring collection seems a step back from the classical Louis Vuitton style but I like it. It's a very eclectic collection with a mixture of modernist, futuristic and classical cuts. Dominated by white, blue and black, it also included other more vibrant colours. I spotted quite a few red accessories (and two red dresses).
If fashion collections shown so far are anything to go by, spring fashion is going to be beautiful. I loved all of the collections I have seen so far, and I can't wait to see them all. When it comes to fashion collections, I like to take my time to browse the runaway. In addition, I always love to see a video recording and if I have time, that's what I do. Sometimes it is hard to get a good feel of the fabrics and how the clothes move just from looking at the photographs. Anyhow, if the designs I have seen so far are to judge, spring is going to be pretty exciting time for fashionistas. I can't wait!

The medium for this illustration is coloured pencils on paper. I've been trying out some new coloured pencils. I will let you know what I think of them. I also bought some watercolour pencils, but I haven't tried them out. I was also gifted some lovely pastels, so I've been experimenting with that as well. My hands hurt from so much drawing! I've kept myself busy lately. I've also made some photo collages. I always use my own photographs when I make these kind of collages. It's fun to play a bit with my illustrations like this. It also allows me to try out some ideas without using the paper. Some day I might even try digital art, but for now I'm happy to explore the more traditional art forms.

Now, it's the time my own designs. We'll start with this blue gown with a high slit. How do you like it? I drew this one with coloured pencils as well but I've also used a bit of a blue marker to create dark blue details on the dress. I think it looks cute. I wouldn't mind owning a dress like this one. Scroll down to see few more photographs of this illustrated blue dress. I also took some photographs with rhinestones because that's always fun.

Bellow you can see two fashion illustrations, both of them illustrations of purple dresses. The first one is a mixed media (coloured pencils and markers) and the second one is just coloured pencils on paper. Let me know how you like them. Would you like to see more fashion illustrations? Would you like to know how to make fashion illustrations? Would you like to know how to decorate fashion illustrations. I'm asking this because I want to know is this something I should write again, or not. What do you guys prefer? Outfit posts or fashion illustrations?
I'm obsessed with this design you can see bellow. I wish I could turn it into reality. Who knows maybe I will? I envisioned this pink and purple dress as very cozy, maybe even knitted? I'm not sure yet do I want it to be more form fitting ( a bit bodycon) or just tailored but not too tight. I wonder where I could the suitable materials. I just remember how I made one purple top from different fabrics in high school. I wish I still had it, for it was certainly cool. I think this dress would look fabulous in reality. So, I hope I can turn it into reality some day. That would be all for today. Thank you for reading and have a lovely Sunday.
